Is a friend someone who simply doesn’t want you harm? Or is he more than that duty of nonfeasance? How far does the meaning of that word extend? It’s ambiguous, the burden of this relationship of trust. But it’s not just that word – a great cloud now obscures all things.
I have only recently realized this subjectivity of life. The fractures between meanings of words reduce down to how selfish of an existence we have created. Meanings do not matter; each word means a very different thing to each one of us. For better or worse, disunited understandings now thrive.
